What a start to a holiday! The staff at Penke Panke were so helpful. From being picked up from the bus station in town, to tips with bus time tables & getting around what a great place. Penke Panke offer shuttles to the supermarket, ATM & 7/11. I was even lucky enough to be part of a staff road trip... More

You'd stay in a lodge because it is not a hotel. You won't have a concierge but you can get some help from people who loved working there. You will get genuine great tips and secrets because there are no business affiliations other than wanting you to have a good holiday. That was my impression of Penke Panke Lodge. The... More

We took the shinkansen to Nagano then bus from Nagano to Hakuba and were picked up by the staff from Penke Panke when we arrived. The staff are amazing and are what makes this lodge so much fun. We had a family room (I think) with a Queen bed and bunk beds for my son and I and it was... More

This hostel went above and beyond my expectations. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They offered daily trips to onsens, the supermarket, the ATM and 7/11. It felt very homely. Situated very close to the bottom of a ski lift. If you wanted to go to Hakuba 47 the bus stop was right outside. The rooms were beautiful and... More

We stayed for 7 nights in a family room (upstairs with a balcony). My wife, our 2 kids (10 & 11) had an absolutely fantastic time and would recommend Penke Panke to anyone. The room was very comfortable with plenty of space. The common area is fantastic and a great place to chill out at the end of a great... More

Had a fantastic holiday at Panke Panke. The staff were very helpful in planning our days skiing and recommending & booking restaurants. The common areas were really clean and cosy. The ski hire was great. Room was clean and comfortable although bathroom was very basic. Live music at the bar was a great way to spend the late afternoon before... More

Penke Panke is a delightful lodge that fits all criteria. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to anyone traveling to Hakuba! It is in a great location within walking distance to the slopes. The staff are willing to help with all needs, and the pick up/drop off service to the atm, local onsen and supermarket is executional.

Thanks so much for the home away from home while we stayed in Hakuba for the week. Hit the slopes by day and hang in the Penke Bar by night. With so many Aussies around it was truly a home away from home which helped keep home sickness at bay for the group of youngsters traveling with us. The fire... More

Penke Panke was the first stop on our honeymoon. We stayed for 9 nights and did not want to leave. We had a private room with an ensuite and it was comfortable and cosy. The location is perfect, only a few minutes walk to The nearest lift. The lodge shuttle bus services made getting around really easy as did the... More

Stayed at Panke for 5 nights in a single room. Great staff and very friendly atmosphere. Things to be aware of so that people don't get shocked: 1-Panke does have a generally younger crowd and the pub (which is fantastic) is right next door so you may occasionally be woken up by some jolly people :) 2-The showers for the...
